The Beginning.......

So many things have changed and let me just say that I hate 2011 and hate October 2011 even more! This has been a horrible month and Adam has been hospitalized twice. In this month Adam has gotten his feeding tube, has lost the ability to talk and his vision is even gone. We rely on us asking him questions and him squeezing our finger and even with that his ability to squeeze is getting minimal. He gets muscle spasms more frequently and has anxiety really bad now.
Many of you may know Adam and some may not...some may have knew him before his diagnoses and some of you may have not. I'm going to start from the beginning and from the first day I found out i was pregnant.
Here it goes hope you enjoy:
The day I found out I was pregnant with Adam was Sept. 25, 2001. As gross as this sounds I still have the home pregnancy test that I took :/ lol. I was young I was 18 and I was scared, excited and all the other emotions you feel when you first find out your pregnant. I had a very good pregnancy with Adam. My favorite food to eat was peanut butter and strawberry jelly with fritos in the middle...the grossest thing that I craved was dill pickle with snickers....YUCK! My due date was May 20,2002. I had a great pregnancy with Adam no morning sickness....he was always in my ribs though and always had the hiccups even after I had him he had the hiccups.
May 16th my water breaks and luckily I'm in the shower which was a good thing considering we were just at the mall. I felt really sick like I was getting the flu. It was about 5:15 when my water broke made it to Kingwood hospital around 6:30. I wasn't in any pain when I first got to the hospital but as the hours went on I started to feel the contractions. I got my epidural finally and on May 17th 2002 at 12:52 am I had a beautiful healthy 7 lb 8 oz 19 inches long baby boy ADAM NATHANIEL HUNTER at that very moment my life changed forever and I was the happiest mama in the world! He was so white I kept thinking I had an albino baby lol jk...Adam was such a good baby he hardly ever cried and I mean hardly ever. I remember one day he kept crying and crying and anything that I did would not help. I took him to the ER and it was only GAS can you believe it was only GAS. At that moment I was relieved but didn't know at that time Adam would always have gas and anybody that knows him knows that would become his SUPER POWER! He was my chunky monkey and his first year of life flew by so quickly. His first birthday was Winnie the Pooh and we had a big blowout. He began walking 2 days after 1st birthday. I was and am one blessed person to be this lil boys mama! I hope you enjoyed the 1st year of his life and stay tuned for the rest of his life story! Love you all and God Bless!
